You are going to get bounced around the pocket, dipped and bent through alley ways and gaps so you have to be flexible enough to bend but not break. Listen to Quarterback Lessons in Mckinney. Whether it is bending over to pick up a low snap, or spinning out of a sack, you have be limber and able to slip and slap away from all the traffic. Playing quarterback is a lot like trying to throw a football in the middle of a fist fight. Here are some suggestions: 


1. Hamstrings 

  • Stand Straight and bend over to touch your toes for 1 minute every day in the AM at breakfast, and again in the PM. Until eventually you can touch your nose to your knee after 2-3 months. 

2. Groin 

  • Hop on your belly, with your knees and ankle knobs flat on the floor. In a half push up stance push back until your butt is past your knees and hold for 60 seconds per day. This will stretch the core of your groin out. 

3. Calves

  • Engage old school calve stretches. Put your hands against the wall. Place your feet back, and your toes forward. Until the point where you can barely put your foot flat on the ground. Hold each calve for 60 seconds 2x per day.

4. Back 

  • Get a long 6 foot stick. And hold it over your shoulders like you are squatting and do 60 rotations side by side replacing each end of the stick with the other end in a 180 degree motion. Loosen that back up two times per day. 

5. Triceps

  • Get a long stick. Hold the very top end and have your other arm behind your back and pull the stick down. So it stretches your triceps out. Hold for 60 seconds 2x per day. 

6. Forearms 

  • Take your hands and extend your arm up against the wall. Then lean into your arm as your hand bends back. Stretch that forearm out 2x per day. 

7. Arms

  • Do about 30-60 arm windmills per day to loosen up your shoulders, and arms, and sockets. Nice and slow. 

8. Neck 

  • Twist that neck around and loosen it up. Nice slow and gently. Your head is going to get smashed in football, and your neck also needs to hold the weight of the helmet. So make sure it is nice and loose and flexible. 


Engage these really simple and easy stretches 5-6x per week. When you wake up, and before you go to bed. It takes 5-10 minutes, and really takes pressure off and relaxes your body. It keeps your arm, and legs nice and relaxed and able to perform consistently. So the next time that defensive end blows past the tackle and puts his helmet into your sternum you don't fall from impact, but bend out of the sack and throw a touchdown. A quarterback who falls from first contact is never going to make it anywhere, and especially if you are as stiff like your living room Christmas tree.
